We had a great time here in Puka Beach with hubby! Drinks are very expensive, but you can stay to their cottages for free! Milk shakes price and other beverages is from 220-280pesos per glass!

Puka beach is a must visit when in Boracay. If you arrive by private sailboat ask them to go to the ends of the beach where it is less quiet and you don't get hassled as mush by the vendors in the middle of puka beach. In saying that have a walk around the beach as it is sooo beautiful!

Great beach located a bit far north on the island but worth it. It's windy but the beach with white sand and thousands of shells and little traditionnal bars will make your day.

It was nice beach but the beach dropped off quickly...not much room for just relaxing in the water. CAUTION...the eatery available on the beach was highway robbery was triple the prices in Boracay!

Far from white beach but it's worth it! Puka beach water is clear and not too crowded. We took a tuk-tuk at 100peso from white beach - estimate 15mins drive

This a great beach that can be accessed by road or by a boat at the North end of Boracay island. Well worth a visit, there are a choice of local shops and restaurants on the beach. It doesn't have all the hassle of White beach and its constant sellers and touts/hawkers.

Went here in the afternoon. It was drizzling and the wind was blowing. We walked by the beach and we enjoyed the sand. The area was not as commercialized as Station 1 and Station 2 beaches. As a person who liked peace and quiet, I liked this place. It was just ironic that we witnessed someone got beaten up by... More
